‘OH, F–K ME’: THE GOOD AND BAD OF THE LEAKED ‘DEADPOOL’ TEST FOOTAGE [VIDEO]
Test footage from the unlikely-but-not-impossible Deadpool movie has been appearing and disappearing all over the Internet for the past few days, with a high-res version popping up on Vimeo (since deleted) and DailyMotion (the player above).
Here’s what we know about it: director Tim Miller and actor Ryan Reynolds made the two minutes or so of footage back in 2012 to convince 20th Century Fox to greenlight a film. It hasn’t convinced them yet, and Reynolds has been less than optimistic about the movie’s chances in recent interviews. Fans can assume that if there had been (or could be) a Deadpool movie, it would have looked a lot like this. There’s a lot to like about what’s in here, and a few things that seem to be missteps.
she had curves in all the right places, and all the left places, also, and in places forgotten by time, and in places known only by dwarven scholars
First footage of The Legend of Korra Video game by Platinum games
I haven’t seen this video cross my dash yet… but it’s a dozen times better than the IGN one, so you’ve all gotta see it. =D
It’s kind of funny… I trust Platinum to make an awesome game, but the IGN video didn’t look like what I was expecting. This one does. One of the game’s creators is playing, and the game looks so much cooler when someone who knows what they’re doing is at the controls. XD
They’ve got water and air tornadoes. Massive area-of-effect earthbending attacks. That waterbending machine gun shield Tarrlok used in Book 1. The variety of bending moves is fantastic, and the last firebending finisher they show off is hilariously brutal in the way one might expect from Korra.
And, because they spend so much time talking about the game, you get to see the animations they added for when the player leaves Korra standing there, and they’re nicely in-character too. She starts stretching if you leave her there for too long, and each bending style has its own waiting stance.
By the way, they confirmed that the game is meant to be canon to the show as a Book 2-Book 3 interquel. It’ll definitely be something to pick up when it comes out!

"We started drifting into the bowl cut era," Evans said, referencing his 7th grade picture. "And the clear braces were something special. Can you see this fantastic bead necklace that I have on? For some reason I buttoned the top button [of my denim shirt]. It’s so unacceptable," he continued. "I blame my parents completely. They knew every day this kid was walking out the door and they said, ‘Good luck!’"
